Juan on the Craziest Party He's Thrown and the Uniqueness of SF Pride

When local promoter Juan began his event service Beatbox seventeen years ago, he never imagined that he would one day become the entertainer and musical selector of the party. “Honestly, it came out of necessity,” he says. In 2004, he began his journey from being behind the scenes to being the DJ, which has helped him understand and book the most suitable selectors for many events. You can also find him behind the decks of local parties at the Powerhouse like STANK or mustache party Mister, playing genres from '90s house to bass-driven funk. We spoke with Juan about the origins of Beatbox, his favorite part of Pride, and his DJ idol. He plays this Friday, June 27, at Monarch for the 7th annual Mister party.
